We’ve been coveting wide-leg trousers for a while, but have no idea how to pull it off. Leave it to Victoria Beckham to wear the widest trousers we’ve ever seen and still look like the icon she is. The former Spice Girl turned fashion designer was seen roaming the streets of Soho in a crimson long sleeve with thumb holes and wide-leg gray trousers with perfectly pressed pleats.

Beckham styled the look with a skinny camel belt and an oversized, white, half-circle clutch. And of course, she was also wearing a pair of sunglasses. We love that Beckham isn’t afraid to try and rewrite what we define as classics — the only tweak she made in this otherwise simple outfit is proportion. By wearing an oversized trouser the look feels more modern and fresh, and by pairing it with a top that has thumbholes she really upgraded the look.

Beckham’s effortless style is also a reminder to know what works for you and to go from there. Classic and simple don’t have to be boring, and this look is a reminder to have fun with details. By experimenting with menswear silhouettes and re-writing them to fit your own aesthetic, you’ll be as stylish as Beckham in no time. Match your tortoiseshell glasses to your camel belt, pick a staple long sleeve with a fun extra detail, and don’t forget to try a wide leg trouser! The fun comes when you remember fashion rules are there to break.

To complete the look, simply match your shoes to your bag. No stress necessary.
